A Precious Moment

10x8 oil on canvas board
 I love capturing a moment.  With Father's Day right around the corner, I have found myself pouring over photos of those moments that are so precious between a father and child.  After I named this I thought a more personal title would have been, "Gentle Father, Precious Son".  
My approach in composing this was to look at the negative shapes first.  It is all about shapes...  AND color ..value...brushwork and so many things.
Today I am happy to announce the start of a new daily painters site, "DAILY PAINTERS ORIGINALS".   And even better is, I am now a "daily painter ".  This means I will be posting more and my work will be viewed by a larger audience.  I am also delighted to be associated with such a talented group of artist.  You can click here, "Daily Painter Originals" to see just what I am talking about.
